Louisiana was ranked #2 in the South for the strongest economic development results in 2017 by Southern Business & Development magazine, based on the state’s share of capital investment and job creation projects.

Six other Louisiana projects, all LNG or petrochemical facilities, landed in the top 20 for highest capital investment projects.
